It was during my days in Cochin, we had two Parsi ladies from Bombay visit the Cochin Club and demonstrate 4 different dishes to the club members. The Hawaiian Tart was one of them and became a staple in our household as a dessert at dinner parties. Though it is called a tart, it is a moist cake and can be enjoyed as an after-school snack, an accompaniment with evening tea or as a dessert served with vanilla ice cream
